I-600A (Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition)

I-600A (Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition)

Adopting a child from a foreign country can take a great deal of time. In many cases, potential adoptive parents can speed up the process by filing I-600A (Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition). This USCIS form shows that the parents are qualified to adopt. Once the form is approved, the parents can then travel and find an adoptive child who meets the legal criteria for an orphan. The processing time for adopting this child will be much faster as the parents will already be approved and only the part of the application process relating to the child will need to be processed.
